The database we will use on this book, as already explained, is MySQL.
Now, considering that you have a Red Hat server, the procedure to install MySQL from the RPM repository is quite easy:
$ yum install mysql mysql-server
Now, you need to set up the MySQL service to start automatically when the system boots:
$ chkconfig --levels 235 mysqld on $ /etc/init.d/mysqld start
Remember to set a password for the MySQL root user
To set a password for the root, you can run these two commands:
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password' /usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root -h hostname-of-your.zabbix.db password 'new-password'
